Tope Oshin

Seen here is a video of Day 2 of the #OccupyNigeria protests against fuel subsidy removal in 2012 at the Gani Fawehinmi Park in Lagos.

An attempt by the government to cut fuel subsidy in 2012 led to what came to be known as the #OccupyNigeria protests. Leaders of the then opposition Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), including Asiwaju Bola Tinubu vehemently opposed the subsidy removal and mobilised public outrage against the government when in the early hours of January 1, 2012, then President Jonathan announced the removal of subsidy from petroleum products.

On Friday, December 25, 2015, President Muhammadu Buhari approved the removal of the Petroleum Support Fund, also known as fuel subsidy.
